Last week Rebel Up did a small takeover at the always amazing Goulash Disko festival in Komiza, at Vis island in the Adriatic sea of Croatia.
SebCat, Memo Pimiento and Don Plok played set on 1 of the 2 beach stages alongside a string of other amazing bands and DJ’s. Big up gratitude to the Goulash crew, all artists and dj’s, and all the old & new friends who shared their top vibes. Between sunshine by day and stormy rainy weather by night, it was quite the experience this year.
Check out the Goulash Diskowebsite or Facebook and follow them for next year 2023, which promises to be another great edition.
